41st BAPTO Annual Pool Tournament

BAPTO is the UK’s most iconic and longest established pool tournament, now in its 41st year!

Following the success of the 40th anniversary event with 127 teams attending, BAPTO are continuing their new tournament format, to give teams a minimum of 60 frames of pool to play! There are now TWO round robin stages, played on the Friday and Saturday, to decide the top 16 teams for both the Team Trophy event and Team Plate event. Teams in groups of 4 will get to play at least 6 matches before they are knocked out.

A true amateur event that gives teams of all skill levels plenty of pool to play!
